We love food. Period. So here’s an excuse to drool over some delish recipes in three hotly anticipated cookbooks, out this month.

For the ultimate tea party

Afternoon tea? Picnic in the park? School fête? Cath Kidston’s got it covered with 50 recipes in her first ever cookbook: Dorset apple cake, macaroni cheese muffins, crunchy almond brittle…YUM. OK, we’ll stop. You get the picture. And they make for a seriously Insta-worthy spread… we wouldn’t expect anything less from the queen of chic!

For a health kick

If you’re looking for scrummy recipes that fit the health bill, this is for you. Hello summer bod! TV and radio presenter Fearne Cotton gives us the lowdown on fast, easy and nutritious snacks and meals. Ditch the dessert; we’re all about courgette fritters with herby yogurt dip, and halloumi and roasted beetroot salad. And if you have a sweet tooth, try the almond and apricot biscuits.

For family faves

One of our fave YouTube stars has got us all nostalgic with her staple bakes and treats. We were edging to get into the kitchen with our pinnies on to try out Tanya’s nanny’s apple pie. Next on the list? It’s got to be the chocolate orange cheesecake or rhubarb and custard muffins. We’ll defo be roping in our BFFs for a baking sesh this weekend!
